    run 17 PSI in my 39.5's but others have run as much as 28psi.

    The best way to tell is take a piece of chalk and cover a section of your tread. drive it a few feet forward and see what marking were scuffed. air up or down to get a good sized contact patch. this can also help the dreaded "center wear" on bias ply tires.
